Need a vinyl version of this please. Amazing stuff, I love it more than the original.

Anyone know what's happening with the repress of this? Was meant to be October/November but seems it's been pushed back until January 2019 now (according to Boomkat).

Sounds great, nice thick vinyl. Little surface noise. Haven't compared it to the half-speed version but didn't really want a copy split over four sides at 45rpm.

Fantastic pressing. Although the screen printed artwork on my copy is slightly smudgy compared to the original version.

My version didn't come with a flattened penny. Also just came with a generic brown paper 'FSC' stamped envelope, not a manila. Nice thick pressing through, definitely 180g.

West Mineral are becoming my favourite label. Forward thinking, futuristic ambient that escapes the drudges of the often tired neo-classical, chin-stroking 'wallpaper' music. Highly recommended stuff.

Check out Lnrdcroy - Much Less Normal, not Warp era but a similar sort of vibe (also from Vancouver). Warp stuff I'd recommended Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works, their Artificial Intelligence series, early albums from Autechre. You might also like ... See full review

Great pressing, but the packaging is pretty bad. The sleeve is really thin and they've put a hideous lamination on top which creases really easily. Mine arrived with a big ring mark imprinted on the cover. Why put a matt-lam finish over nice uncoated ... See full review

I think I actually prefer it at 33RPM, much more hypnotic. Maybe it's meant to be played at either speed?

My copy sounds great. Some of the tracks do have a lo-fi treatment and background tape hiss/white noise, but they're in the original WAVs.

I think you're right. It sounds great once you lower the highs and up the mids through a mixer. Otherwise I find it quite fatiguing to listen to.
posted a comment on Abul Mogard. 3 months ago
For me a lot of Abul Mogard's work sounds similar to Tim Hecker's Ravedeath. Coincidentally Abul Mogard's first release was in 2012, Ravedeath was released in 2011...

This is great, best thing Sferic has put out so far. Looking forward to see what the label brings. Reminds me a bit of the stuff on West Mineral.

What is? Bad mastering? My copy of Ship-Scope sounds great.
posted a review of Shinichi Atobe - Heat. 4 months ago
Is it just me or does the EQing seems all over the place on this one? The highs pierce through the mix in an unpleasant way and all of the mids seem really muffled and quiet. The shaker on 'So Good, So Right' are so harsh.

Boomkat usually distribute to the US I think. They do all the distribution for West Mineral which is available in the US.

Also to the scalpers selling this for £50+, it’s still available on Boomkat for 20 quid.

Anyone else’s copy have excessive surface noise and crackle? Even after a thorough clean there’s lots of clicks and pops on my pressing.

My first real introduction to Posh Isolation as a label, I've listened to a bit of Varg before but that's about it.

Comes off as mostly pretentious and amateur 'art school kid' ambient/experimental/noise music. Have to agree with the review below. 'One ... See full review

Really nice off-kilter tribal ambient album. West Mineral Ltd. are definitely a label to watch, everything they've put out so far is great.

Glad to finally own this on vinyl, big ups to Pacific Rhythm. Reminds me a lot of the early ambient stuff on Warp in the 90s, but with that distinctive 'Vancouver sound'.

What's the pressing quality of the black versus clear version of this? In my experience non-coloured vinyl tends to have less surface noise and lends itself to a cleaner listen.

Is this going to be a cassette repress or an actual vinyl repress?

The Hunt's Up (Live Mix) is an absolute belter. Might have to buy a copy just for that.

I'm glad I didn't blind buy it like some people suggested. It's an okay release but nothing standout like his previous EPs. Feels slightly unfinished and just a collection of ideas/beats.

It samples Dead Can Dance - Dawn of the Iconoclast. Sample originally made famous by Future Sound Of London - Papua New Guinea.

Great news, missed it first time around! Will it just be a standard pressing or do you think they'll release another batch of the deluxe version?

Off Season sounds almost identical to DJ Normal 4 – Transcendental Training Tactics. Not sure which samples being used here or if Joy Orbison is sampling the DJ Normal 4 track?

Does anyone else's copy sound a bit muddy and distorted? The kick doesn't quite sound right to me, never sounds crisp in the mix.
